The "Old Vines" Cabernet originally started as the "Dedication Series" with the start of the winery in 1981. The label features a pioneer of the Walla Walla Valley and the wine is now sourced primarily from Champoux Vineyard, which is home to some of the oldest cabernet blocks in the state of Washington. This is a heavier-bodied cabernet and will typically age well, with proper cellar conditions, 15+ years from vintage.
Old vines from two classic Washington vineyards (Champoux and Sagemoor) give this a wonderful plushness; its dark fruit is set against a background of herb and mineral. Dig and you'll find berries, cherries, plums and cassis, lovely hints of rosemary and thyme, sturdy tannins and a lingering, grainy finish.
Good bright medium ruby. Enticing aromas of black raspberry, smoky oak, cedar, maple syrup and earth. Sweet, rich, creamy and deep, with mouthfilling flavors of thoroughly ripe cassis and black raspberry. Really coats the tongue and palate with rich fruit flavors. Finishes quite broad, with dusty, fine tannins and impressive length. A very rich cabernet that needs five or six years in bottle.
